Kingston – The K&P Trail is one step closer to the downtown. Crews are now breaking ground and clearing sections around Doug Fluhrer park and Molly Brant Point. The trail is still on track to open in time for Canada’s 150th birthday next summer. Most of the construction will be done in the fall, with clean up in the spring. As work continues to extend the walking trail into the downtown core, the city is paying special attention to turtles and their habitats. 8 basking logs are being placed in the
bay at the north end of Doug Fluhrer Park and the south side of Molly Brant Point. The logs will essentially become a new habitat for turtles and other animals.
Neil Unsworth, Parks Development Manager
“We put this section on hold until after September 15th which is when much of the habitat for turtles isn’t used for nesting anymore and most of the gestation period is over and we even cleared the site of any possible stragglers and late bloomers.”
